ODESSA - Saturday marked the third annual West Texas Crossroads Marathon.

Runners lined up on Highway 191 and Billy Hext at 7 a.m. Saturday morning for the 5K, half and full marathon.

This event is not only a qualifier for the Boston Marathon but it raises money for several non-profits right here in the Basin.

Runners traveled through streets surrounding Highway 191, Loop 338 and crossed the finish line at Ratliff Stadium.

Faudree and Yukon between Highway 191 and the Loop were shut down from 7 a.m. to 1:30p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
